Philipp Melanchthon's understanding of the will's role in justification changed over time. This book traces the evolution of that change throughout the course of Melanchthon's theological career, 1519–60. It is proposed that the reason for Melanchthon's change was neither the persuasiveness of Erasmus, nor the influence of philosophical metaphysics, but rather the internal dynamics of his own theology when played out in a pastoral context.
